The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.89 billion Scionites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the Elk is a protected species, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Cult of the Clove, and its currency is the Shield.

Sciongrad is ranked 84th in International Democratic Union and 118,920th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
